Iguazu Falls

Parana, Brazil

It’s no “wonder” that Iguazu Falls, located on the border between Brazil and Argentina, is greater than its name “Big Water” suggests. The series of falls, named to the world’s Seven Natural Wonders in 2011, range up to nearly 300 feet in height and more than 1.5 miles wide. By comparison, Niagara Falls is only 165 feet at its tallest point.  Tour the famed “Devil’s Throat” portion via helicopter from the Brazilian side or large walkways, busses and taxis from Argentina.
